How about a family shot from the 19th century?
Towards the end of my parents' life, I came across a print in an album which I'd never seen before. It was a group photo of my Great Grandparents, Great Uncles and Great Aunties, taken by a professional photographer (I presume) sometime in the 1890's before my father was born.
The only member of this group I ever recall meeting was the guy in the middle of the second row, who is my grandfather. Of course I knew him as a much older man.
I scanned this print about 10 years ago and recorded it to CD-ROM. I haven't got around to making another copy on DVD or Blu-ray or even an external hard drive, but I intend to eventually. You'll all be pleased to know that this 10 year-old CD-ROM has not suffered from bit rot, as have none of my other CD-ROMS of similar age, and is still perfectely readable.
Before my father died, I got him to tell me the names of these unknown family members. From top left to bottom right, they are:
(1) Great Aunt Margaret, rebellious and insouciant. She would have been told by the photographer to keep as still as possible for the long exposure, but is the only one of the group who moved. She was my father's favourite aunt.
(2) Great Uncle John, a blacksmith by trade.
(3) Joseph, my grandfather, and a carpenter by trade. (Now that's interesting. Wasn't there another Joseph in ancient history who was also a carpenter? Did my grandfather become a carpenter because he thought it suited his name?)
(4) David, a ship's engineer.
(5) Jessie (no details).
(6) Lizzie (no details)
(7) Robert, a journalist.
Elizabeth, my Great Grandmother, looking as cheerful as ever.
(9) David, my Great Grandfather, a butcher by trade and looking just as cheerful as his wife.
(10) Bella (no details).
Hope you find this interesting.
